In Illustrator CS6, is there a good script of plugin that can make a connect the dots puzzle from a path.
There's some discussion of people who did it with Apple script here. However, they are from 2009. I think Apple must have change the apple script engine since then, because the script doesn't seem to work.
Have you tried using the dashed line option as suggested in that post. Strokes size control size of dots, gap is the gap between.
Please post a screenshot showing where you are and describing how you would prefer your result to be different.
I would prefer a scripted solution, as I have several puzzles to make, so numbering them all would take a while! If not, then this will have to do!
I seem to remember that Inkscape has this function, so why not use it for the job?
I tried Inkscape extensively but was unable to get it to work.
I worked this out: The script does work, you just need to run it from The Apple Script editor and not from inside Illustrator.
Hi. Is there a possibility to drow only with dots? I mean a circle like 0,5x0,5mm and with this circle I want to draw figeres etc. The circle is important for me because if the figure is smaller I can change the boarder of the dots/circle and make them larger. I hope people can understand mhat I mean? Thanks
The script that Ton linked doesn't work for you?
And if so please tell us what exactly doesn't work for you.
Use the dashed line with round caps, set the first dash to zero, gap should be a multiple of your line thickness (or not - play with it and fine the sweet spot for your project...)
